Admissions Programs

Admissions Programs Defined

In SchoolFront programs are groupings of steps placed in a specific order with requirements associated with each step.

Example Admissions Programs

Schools may need many programs defined in SchoolFront to allow for deviations in the application process based on admissions process and requirements. A school's programs may be very similar or very different. Some examples of admissions programs (disparate processes required for admission) include:

  • General Admissions Program (for all standard US citizens)
  • International Admissions Program (for non-US citizens)
  • Special Needs Admissions (for students requiring special educational facilitation)
  • Summer Camp Admissions Program (for children applying for admission to summer camp)
  • Upper School Admissions
  • Lower School Admissions
  • Pre-School Admissions

Generally speaking, you should create a program for each different application process you require. For example you may create different Admissions Programs for students who are US citizens and students with non-US citizenship.

When a student (or representative of the student) started the application process, he or she would begin by choosing an appropriate program from a list of admissions programs which you configured for your school.

The programs for a US and Non-US application process might look like this--notice the subtle differences in step requirements and the addition of a Visa Acquisition Step for students of non-US citizenship:

Example 1:
Admission Program for Student's WITH United States Citizenship
 
Example 2:
Admission Program for Student's WITHOUT United States Citizenship
